This weekend I packaged over 30 advanced reader copies of Laurence A. Rickels' SPECTRE, a schizoanalysis of the James Bond oeuvre, to send out for review in journals and magazines. SPECTRE is the second publication from Anti-Oedipus Press and will be available in hardcover, paperback and ebook formats. Here is a press release. If you are interested in reviewing the book (in a professionally published venue or just Amazon, Goodreads, a blog, etc.), please contact me via Facebook or email. Thanks.


My story "Directeur" appears in the latest issue of Backlit, edited by artist, musician and writer Brandon Duncan a.k.a. Expiring Sun, who has done a dynamite job designing and stylizing the layout for the story.

If we haven't worked together before, please include a brief description of your scholarly interests, publications, etc. Thanks.

My story "Invective" appears in issue 12 of The Surreal Grotesque. This piece will eventually appear in my upcoming fiction collection Battle without Honor or Humanity. It's extrapolated from extensive, ornery feedback I received from an anonymous peer reviewer regarding my critical essay on the film Transformers, "Technomasculine Bodies & Vehicles of Desire: The Erotic Delirium of Michael Bay's Transformers," which was published recently in the academic journal Extrapolation.
